Most diet plans suggest that you cut certain foods out of your diet to do the best results from it. In following Suzanne Somers’ diet plan you will do the same. While you never completely cut out a specific food group there are some foods that you will need to avoid while following her diet plan. This article will focus on the most important foods to avoid while following Suzanne Somers’ diet plan and why it is so important to do so.
Suzanne Somers’ diet plan has categorized these foods into four groups. Since the lists are lengthy I’ll just give a few examples of the foods that are in each group so you get an idea of what to expect.
As you can probably imagine right at the top of the list of foods to avoid is sugar. Not just in sugars plain form but this group includes sugar sources as well. Sugars that are found from both natural and refined sources. You know that you are going to find sugar in cookies, candy, juices soda’s etc. but some forms that are completely natural and you should avoid as well. Such as corn syrup, molasses, honey, maple syrup, beets and carrots. This brings us to the next group of foods because they actually turn into sugar after they’re consumed.
This second group of foods falls into the group of starches. Some of the first foods that come to mind are white rice, white flour and potatoes. Again, there are other foods that are natural but also do harm to a diet because they turn directly into sugar. These foods include butternut squash, acorn squash, bananas, corn and pumpkin.
The third group of foods are some that don’t really fit into any of the other categories so it has received the title of bad combo foods. The foods included in this group are nuts, olives, low-fat or whole milk, low-fat or full fat soy milk and avocado’s.
Finally, the last food group is one that is also commonly excluded from many diets. This group is caffeine and alcohol. Although we turn to caffeine to give us energy, while you are following Suzanne Somers’ diet plan you are trying to balance your body. While giving your body a quick burst of energy caffeine also imbalances your body and goes against what you are trying to do. As for alcohol most of us are aware that it fills you up with empty calories which turn into fat. Again, while following this diet plan it goes against balancing your body.
